    Hi guys, first off, awsome forum super usefull.
    Need a bit of help regarding batteries.
    Will be buying phantom fc40 soon (Live in south america, rarely go to US so must get purchase right) - also on a bit of a budget

    what's a better option to buy?

    1) extra charger (having two in total counting the one that comes with the phantom) and 3 extra 2200 dji stock batteries (having 4 total)
    2) 2 2700 lectron pro┬┤s and no extra charger?

    both options cost about the same but was wondering if it wouldn't be better option 1 since I get faster charging (by parallel) and can go back out to the field in no time and have 40 minutes (in 4 different batteries)

    Also, Is there a way to be able to change the battery in the field without powering out the phantom (as I understand it when you change the battery it shuts down and you have to do the turning on sequence again right?

    Many thanks!! only have a few days left to make final purchase!!

    I would go for the option 1. The Phantom stock batteries are easier to fit into the Phantom. At the beginning I had 2 stock charger and 4 stock batteries. Now I have 8 batteries and this charger... awesome quick
